St. Thomas Aquinas

St. Thomas Aquinas says: “Praise be to Jesus.”

“I invite souls to understand that the way Satan appeals to their hearts is by misrepresenting the truth. He makes evil look good. He tempts the physical senses and the emotional senses; such as: the pride of power and love of control, vanity [as regards to physical appearance], and love of reputation.”

“Suppose someone speaks unkindly about you. It is Satan who keeps reminding you of it. He tells you that you have the right to be angry. He fosters pouting and unforgiveness in your heart. Satan is the one who encourages you to criticize and to judge others in your heart. He encourages division in this way; once again he compromises truth, for you do not know the motives of other hearts.”

“Study these statements and how they relate to your own lives. Correct any error present in your own heart.”
